Do they have to be worn as pairs?


Customer Care    03/03/2017

As a general rule, yes. Vasyli Dananberg Orthotic balances the lower limbs. Always fit a pair, even if pain is felt in only one foot or limb, which is usually the case.



Betty     03/02/2017

Do they fit on top of existing insoles?


Customer Care    03/03/2017

No, remove all insoles within the footwear being fitted with the Vasyli Dananberg Orthotic. If the orthotic is fitted on top of existing insoles, it will "de-tune" the effectiveness of prescription and may contribute to arch intolerance, as will well-worn footwear. As a general rule, if the footwear has a full-length insole fitted, replace it with a full-length orthotic.



Nelson     03/02/2017

How are they cleaned?


Customer Care    03/03/2017

Vasyli Dananberg First Ray Orthotic covers are impregnated with an antibacterial / antimicrobial compound to eliminate odor. If the product requires general cleaning, wipe over with a damp cloth using a mild soap solution, rinse, towel dry, and air naturally. Do not expose the orthotics to any external heat source. Do not soak or machine wash.



Mike     03/02/2017

Can I reheat them?


Customer Care    03/03/2017

Yes, you can reheat Vasyli Dananberg First Ray Orthotic, if required. However, you cannot "regenerate" the rearfoot control by heat-molding. That requires the use of the rearfoot additions. Vasyli Dananberg First Ray Orthotic will not mold under body heat generated in the footwear.
